Notes & Reviews:

From the time of the Renaissance, young men would take educational tours to improve their language skills, visit famous monuments, and learn foreign customs. Many musicians also undertook this arduous journey to hear their famous contemporaries' music, and get to know their musical tastes and dialects. Viewed against this background, it is hardly surprising that the early 18th century saw the emergence of a "mixed style" in one country after another. A Cavalier's Tour sends early music ensemble Concerto Grosso Berlin on a musical journey with period instruments, taking it beyond the Baroque strongholds of England, France, Italy, and Germany. The result is a motley round of diverse compositions, distinguished not by their differences but by their similarities, bringing the spirit of bygone Europe alive through the medium of this hitherto unknown repertoire.
